DHCP client ignores server replies when 802.1q tagging is used
Plus Target Version:
Some ISPs (notably AT&T Gigapower) will send 802.1q-encapsulated DHCP replies, which get filtered out by the BPF filter applied on the listening socket by dhclient. This causes dhclient to ignore those replies and never obtain an IP address in this scenario.
